Bridge this period


No matter if you enjoy your craft beer during summer until late in the evening or try one of our specials in the garden during winter - we and our garden are there for you all year round. We unpack our cuddly blankets for the cooler nights and get out the fire bowl.


The freshest craft beer in town is brewed in this industrial space inside Basel’s former electrical substation located at Voltaplatz. We brew our Volta Bräu beer after traditional methods and with strong passion. The brewpub combines an urban feel-good atmosphere with the attraction of the brewery – our home-brewed beers are tapped and served directly at the bar. The love for beer and the desire for variety and change is reflected in the selection.

Your Volta Bräu Team

Food and drink

High-quality and homemade. That’s our philosophy. All our beers and signature drinks can be perfectly paired with items from our mouth-watering menu – such as our legendary pulled pork sandwich and the antipasti platter.


Craft Beer

What makes a beer a good one? The most obvious though appropriate answer really is: When it’s delicious! But beer is a matter of taste and will always be and so everyone has to find his own favorite - this often depends on regional habits and initial drinking experiences. Therefore, we at Volta Bräu plead for diversity: On our taps we have up to 7 different home-brewed beers at a time ready for you to taste. Cheers.


Your host

„Be yourself, because an original is worth more than a copy“.

Remo Rentsch throws the party for you at Volta Bräu. As a host, he puts a lot of emphasis on high quality, be it in gastronomy or in beer.

Sustainable and delicious

We only use the very best ingredients, which is why we never throw anything away. We use what's left over from the brewing process to bake our delicious homemade bread. This draff bread is then used to make our notorious sandwiches. Any draff that isn't turned into bread becomes a tasty treat for the Angus cattle who live over on the Schelten Pass.


We try to make sure that all beer enthusiasts can always find a seat, so we only take reservations for groups of 12 or more. If you’re organising a special event, we will gladly put together a suitable package for you. Our rotisserie BBQ is exclusively available for groups who enjoy grilling up food on their own. Here you will find more information and our menu suggestions. We look forward to hearing from you.


What a party

5 years Volta Bräu

We have celebrated on 01. and 02. November our 5th birthday - with yummy Streetfood and with RokiRoki, our birthday beer. We danced and discussed until late into the night.
